Halloween Witches Junk Journals

It’s Fall and time for Halloween and today I’m sharing four Halloween Witches Junk Journals I made using Calico Collage digital images, Canvas Corp Brands Halloween cardstock, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and more.

Halloween Witches Junk Journals

Last week I visited Canvas Corp Brands Home office and was able to pick up a few new things. I also got a few RAK’s (Random Act of Kindness) packages in the mail filled with Halloween items. This prompted me to take a look at my stash and see that I had some Calico Collage digital images ready to use.

The result was four Halloween Witches Junk Journals. Each journal has 8 sheets of paper folded in half for a total of 32 pages to add memories. The journals are almost 5 inches by 7 inches in size. Lots of Stamping and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists were used in each journal.

Here is a flip through video for the four Halloween Witches Junk Journals.

Being able to use the papers and images along with the items that were sent to me was wonderful. Using my sewing machine to add a few stitches here and there brings me joy. This was also a great time to bust out my Halloween Stamps, some I’ve had for years.

Although each journal has the same basic papers and I used some of the same techniques each is unique. Stamping, Spraying Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, adding stickers and more help to make each one unique.

Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme

I’ve decided to share how I Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme today. My latest project is a Halloween Junk Journal and I thought it might be nice to see how to alter envelopes for this Halloween Theme.

Here is a Video on How to Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme.

It has been fun collecting envelopes. My family helps by saving the envelopes that their mail comes in so that I can alter these. What I enjoy is being able to take something that is destined for the trash and making it into something new.

Even though the envelopes I made are going inside a junk journal these can be altered to set back out in the mail. Years ago the stamp club I was a member of would decorate envelopes for our newsletters. Every month we were to bring a couple of envelopes so that the newsletter editor could mail out the newsletter in a decorated envelope. Getting those decorated envelopes was so much fun. Little works of art on the outside to hold information on the inside.

To Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme you will want a few things. Envelopes, Stamps, scraps of paper, washi tape, sewing machine (optional), cheese cloth, Tattered Anges Glimmer Mists, Halloween images (I used some from Calico Collage – All Hallows Eve digital journal kit, some distressed ink and I also used Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven.

Once all the supplies are gathered cut the envelope open. For my project I wanted the envelopes to be no longer than 7.25 inches. Some people will cut each end to make a centered envelope. I just cut off one side that had the return address. Then I cut the other side so that the envelope can open all the way up.

Cut a piece of scrap paper, in my case I used a page out of a book I’ve torn apart to the same size as the envelope. This scrap paper will become the new flap on the envelope. Apply distress ink to the flap and the envelope. Use washi tape to attach this to make a flap.

Now choose some of those stamps and images and apply these to the envelope. You can decide if you want to seal the envelopes sides with sewing, washi tape or glue. I like sewing these. Sometimes I leave it so that it can be opened all the way and journal inside.

Chuck Carson Collection for Brutus Monroe Shaker Card

My guest post for the Chuck Carson Collection for Brutus Monroe Shaker Card Featuring the Spooky Selfie stamps as a member of the Inspiration Team.

I’m excited to get to use a new line of stamps for the first time. It’s like when you hear about someone getting an advanced copy of a book or a product before everyone else does. I got stamps before the public so that I could create art! I was stoked!

The other thing I’m exited about? Getting to post my artwork on a mixed media website. These are things I’ve been wanting to do for a long time but kept putting things off. I didn’t seek the opportunity. You can talk about doing something for a long time, but if you don’t take action then you will never reach your goal. Well I took action and I’m working on a long term goal. Follow along my journey and I hope you enjoy while I share art and learn about new products and meet new people.

Go check out this Shaker Card with a video and let me know what you thought.
